By Bertha von Suttner

"¡Abajo las armas!" es los angeles biografía de ficción de una mujer a quien los angeles guerra le ha arrebatado dos maridos. Un relato naturalista de las campañas bélicas de 1859, 1864, 1866 y 1870/1871. Una implacable descripción de los horrores y odios, cuando no injusticias, que provocan los conflictos armados. Bertha von Suttner pone de relieve los angeles angustia de las mujeres cuyos maridos e hijos perdían l. a. vida o quedaban mutilados en el campo de batalla. Pero también cuestiona a una sociedad que considera virtudes positivas el coraje combativo y el orgullo de ser soldado; también a los Estados que periódicamente lanzan a l. a. Humanidad a un baño de sangre bajo pretextos como l. a. dignidad, el patriotismo o l. a. propia defensa.
